    From the moment we arrived the car park attendant walked us to a suitable space. On entry to the restaurant itself the owner greeted us with smiles & handshakes, thanked us for visiting and then showing us to the table. Can’t fault the service by all the staff, attentive & polite. Food was amazing, with a great selection of specials. Complimentary drinks at the end & not overly expensive. Will definitely be visiting again.

    A wonderful characterful authentic Italian restaurant, The food “To start” Taylor made anti pasta to share Fresh, quality driven food, with excellent presentation & beautiful flavours. “Main course” Veal, with Orange & Wild sea bass - Wild Bass was a large portion, so we shared, wonderfully cooked to perfection. - Veal, Explosively flavoured sauce, well cooked & superbly balanced. Desserts Tiramisu I have tried many, however this lovingly prepared dish was made with hear & some... simply fantastic. Panna cotta Made to a perfect consistency & well balanced flavour The service was very natural & very warm, we were made to feel very welcome. This restaurant is worth making a detour. Or going the extra mile as the food & service are very memorable, Well done Vita Bella

    I was in the area to spend the day with a colleague. We use trip advisor a lot to find where we’d like to have lunch. We decided on Vita Bella and well what an excellent choice it was. This restaurant is 10/10 across the board. The food and service both stand out. Made to feel very welcome we were shown to our table. The service is on point but not over bearing. All the staff are polite and helpful. Beautiful inside, stunning food choice I literally cannot recommend dining here enough. I’m from Yorkshire but will ensure every time I’m in the area I will be visiting again.

    What a great start to our first visit to Vita Bella being greeted with an umbrella so we didnt get wet from car to the restaurant was a great touch...met the owner who was charming and very welcoming and explained that nothing was too much trouble then proceeded to serve some delicious food that we couldnt fault...unfortunately then came the slight embarrasment and disappointment with the waitress approaching us asking if we would like a drink on the house...neither my wife and I were drinking so we asked for just one white coffee to be told I'm sorry we cant offer you a tea or coffee only a brandy or some sort of cognac...clearly we refused and left feeling a slightly disappointed and a little embarrassed.

    My wife, her mother and I have just arrived home from a superb lunch at this charming restaurant. On arrival, we were greeted by a member of staff who took our car keys and parked the car! Ciprian, the owner introduced himself and showed us to our table. The restaurant was warm and friendly. We were shown various menus and the wine list which had a good selection of wines, spirits and beers, some alcohol-free. The prices were reasonable.The waiting staff were absolutely charming and talked us through the menus. We eventually chose from the fixed price menu with a choice of one,two or three courses. As my mother-in-law eats little. Ciprian asked if she wanted a half main course portion which was perfect for her! This reasurant is a must for the quality of food and service. It's also located in a beautiful area. My wife and I had the bread basket, a starter and main course each and Mother-in-law had the one course, half portion. The bill for that plus a soft drink and my large glass of Rioja was a reasonable £66. As gratuities are left to your discretion, I gave them £10 which was much appreciated. If you haven't visited here before, give it a try! You won't be disappointed!!!

    This was the second time I have eaten here, it never disappoints, The service from stepping out of your car to sitting at your table is better that any Michelin star restaurants. The food is fantastic, Italian fair without the pizzas which is always a thumbs up for me. The service and staff is out of this world and you wouldn't get this service in some high class restaurants in London. If you have a birthday, anniversary please let them know at the time of booking. The decor is comfortable and provides everything you wish. I would highly recommend this little gem but you would need to book in advance as word has got out.....

    After hearing such good reviews, we decided to eat here for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed. The staff are amazing, so polite, attentive and really make you feel special. Food was delicious, the best Italian food I’ve had. Could not fault anything about this restaurant. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back.

    Took my daughter and my wife to lunch at Vita Bella. We live locally and have been to Vita Bella many times over the years. We've never been disappointed! Service is excellent and the food superb. You pay a little more but it's worth it. Known locally as a 'special place' to take family and friends. recommend it!

    We went for dinner on Friday night at Vita Bella after hearing good reviews of the restaurant. From start to finish, the customer service was excellent! I have never been to a restaurant before that greets you as soon as you arrive in the car park! They even opened the door for my partner’s nan which was lovely customer service. The staff could not have been more attentive during the meal and were always happy to answer any questions. Our waitress was extremely helpful and very friendly when I asked about the menu so many thanks to her for being so lovely! The food was also lovely, with so many good choices. A great selection of dishes, we were spoilt for choice! We had scallops and mussels for starters which were delicious. Then we had steaks and chicken for main which was also very tasty. The meat was cooked to perfection! Desserts did not disappoint either and my partner’s nan said it was the best cheesecake she’s ever eaten! After the meal, we were offered a complimentary drink which was a lovely, we had baileys and limoncello! As we left the restaurant, my partner was given a birthday gift of a little bottle of Jack Daniels which was also a lovely touch. Overall, we had such a lovely first experience at Vita Bella and cannot wait to return! 10 star service, amazing food and lovely atmosphere! Thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening.

    Me and my partner came here for my birthday last night, having heard such amazing reviews we wanted somewhere special and vita Bella did exactly that! From start to finish our whole dining experience was amazing. We were greeted at the car park and shown to the door, then greeted by staff who too the time to seat each customer and speak to them, The staff were very friendly. I have coeliac and was initially worried i may be limited, but this was not the case the manager (i believe) explained the menu in full detail and there was only very few items that i could not have, all of my gluten free options tasted amazing and i was very pleasantly surprised, my dessert even had a candle in for my birthday which was a beautiful touch. we can't recommend Vita Bella enough and this will definitely be our restaurant of choice for our nights out now. Thank you to all at Vita Bella!

    Went tonight for my daughters 27th birthday and I absolutely love this place, not only is it such a pretty and beautifully decorated restaurant its atmosphere is just lovely. The food is just gorgeous, I had the pork belly which was incredible and the rest of our party enjoyed their meals just as much as I did. Lovely management and staff plus there’s plenty of them as well so you never have to wait to be served as they are always nearby to serve you.

    Just come back from a lovely lunch, we don’t come here all the time to keep it as a treat for us, but were recognised and welcomed by the staff. The food is always excellent and it is lovely to be looked after but not hurried along and rushed. My risotto and my husbands turkey was delicious as were the deserts. Lovely to chat with the owner afterwards and to be given a panettone to enjoy later!

    We have visited Vita Bella many times since it first opened - evenings, Sundays, Mothers Day, birthdays etc and have always had a really lovely meal here, but visited for Christmas Day this year for the first time. What a wonderful experience we had - the staff, the food, the atmosphere - everything was absolutely fantastic and we could not fault it at all. If i could comment on anything it would be to add some brussel sprouts to the turkey dinner and cut the carrots slightly thinner, but this is by no means a criticism at all, just personal preference and me being my ultra fussy usual self! We cannot wait to book again for next year. Well done VB, spot on.

    Finally managed to visit this restaurant for a birthday celebration. Parking Reasonable sized parking area which was serviced by a very courteous vallet. Decor Very refined which created a relaxed atmosphere in which to dine Menu Good aray of choice on offer which I have to say was blissful on the taste buds and a pleasure on the eyes . Service I have to say the level of service was excellent with all staff being polite, courtesy and considerate to our needs . Bonus Touch As it was my partner birthday the restaurant surprised her with a little cake as a treat. This was a lovely touch Highly recommend a visit if you are in the area .

    Recently visited for the first time to celebrate our daughters 21st birthday. Couldn't fault the service not over board but always around if needed. The food was excellent, a little expensive but definitely worth it. Thank you so much for the cupcake and complimentary drinks after. Will definitely be back again

    Myself and wife were first time diners here today. We had a glorious 3 course lunch and we were blown away by the service. These guys set the bar so high and it’s no surprise they are where they are in the rankings for restaurants in the area. They really are the ‘gold standard’ when it comes to service. All of the staff were wonderful. Friendly and very helpful. Wine poured into glasses soon after being seated. Pepper grinded and Parmesan grated onto your dishes, tables buffed in between courses. This place does it the right way. The owner (I believe) even approached our table midway through to check if we were happy and we had a very brief friendly chat. We were treated like a King and Queen from the moment we were left our car to the moment we left the building. Compliments to the chefs. The food was all delicious. We both had the calamari and linguine with monkfish. Perfectly presented and arrived nice and hot. Thank you all for a truly brilliant experience. We can’t wait to return. Hat’s off to you.

    We had a wonderful evening celebrating my hubby’s 50th with friends. The service was beyond first class, amazing attention to detail - not something you encounter too often! The food and wine list was brilliant and we all had the most memorable time - highly recommend!
